poroshenko ordering a non-combat sorry forty kilometers around the area earlier this week the head of the always c e monitoring mission in ukraine has expressed concern that the fighting around the question is holding back the investigation forensic experts and arrived in the country to conduct a full probe however they were forced to cancel their plan to visit the site on sunday due to the intensifying undressed the netherlands australia and malaysia also abandon the initiative to send an international armed mission they see the risks would too great journalist patrick lang caster earlier managed to visit the site. where you left him a servant crashed right. there while we were there are just flying around overheard where we can hear explosions in the first and third we went forward to a very far ukrainian military training ground on the road and now we are very close
to the circular. tours and i can see. very very heavy gunfire going towards and. the last planes are carrying the remains of the victims have landed in the netherlands two cargo jets one doesn't want to stray me and i've. been in each bearing one thousand coffins the netherlands the last one hundred and ninety four there because i'm from the flight seventy two tragedy a team of two hundred special this is working on identifying the bodies the closest it could take months to all of our. porth from a nation in the army. i don't forward the public so. the people of iraq to pay tribute to a family is restored to his politics the very fabric of this family is so within the whole community would know so everybody knows someone here and has been coming
you know for years so you are quite shocked restaurant owners before the engine died in the crash along with these laws mother and sweet for only this son kevin wasn't on the plane now he's left pick up the pieces you can imagine how big a loss he's lost his parents his grandmother. works in the restaurant also. hope he can manage to. go on like you spend it outside the asian gorge restaurant floral tributes while those who knew the family that concerned more with making the day rest than these national clamor about investigating the tragedy the meeting is start with the bodies home return sorry goodbye to them on the proper way ultimately what memorial service is like the one going on behind me show that even in its darkest hour the people of the netherlands are coming together to show that they stand as one peter all of
a polity. the first relatives of victims have arrived at the scene of that is us in eastern ukraine and australian couple lost they only child in malaysian airlines fly seventeen twenty five a team i was an aerospace engineering student. the first thing been be very hard to see he said how he should survive this he said how do we survive sees it we promise i what we have promised our daughter we will come here but it is actually as soon as possible does the time factor the week he should have come here the minute it happened the next day. the purpose here to establish what board the plane is widely believed to have been hit by a missile russia's defense ministry has presented information on the crash publishing satellite images and radar tracking data from that day let's take
a look now at that moscow says it detected another aircraft in the same path as the malaysian plane which is bearing the parameters of a ukrainian military jet however here of claims all of its planes were on the ground at the time plus satellite images show ukrainian rocket launching system in the area just days before the crash but on the same day as a tragedy it was apparently moved to an unknown location russia's defense ministry is still waiting for comment on the information it has released we haven't received from ukraine or from greece commenting on forcible causes for the disaster is more still there cormorants based on material from social media the u.s. says the malaysian airliner which crashed killing at least killing all two hundred ninety eight people on board was or done by a surface to air missile washington claims that was fired from territory controlled
by militia groups it's also criticized russia for allegedly supporting anti here forces washington has yet to provide evidence of these claims a fact that has not been lost on journalists. i would like to know what you're basing this new evidence that the russians intend to send any heavier equipment home based on some intelligence information i can't get into the sources and methods behind it but i was able to be able to tell you that is there a you tube video or something that you could point us to that i mean you know engines and i'm just wondering if you what what what it is i just said i wasn't going to give you the underlined source for me did you slightly out of love in many ways it's not with us you're right i don't give you more information just saying that i think you're the source i'm actually asked you a question here by katie the source a method would you prefer i not give you the information theory i think that it would be best for all concerned here in the other question you see when you make an allegation like that you're able to back it up with something more than just
because i say so within a few hours of the malaysian plane catastrophe many western politicians as well as journalists had already made up their minds on who was to blame several news outlets pointed the finger at russia this by the lack of any investigation results and this as you can has been keeping track of the media frenzy. the media coverage in the west has been largely slanted against russia public opinion of course response to that kind of coverage of accent i meant is that russia is probably involved and if involved they're probably going to cover it up that's where the public sentiment is and in the c.n.n. poll the american people got it right in terms of who's to blame here folks fifty one percent said russia's and directly involved only the stakes are high whoever shoulders the blame for this atrocity is going to be the target of global anger and right now it looks like it's russia's fault because it's russia's fault i it's quite clearly the latest twist in this propaganda war the russians through the
ambassador here in kuala lumpur are present. events to the malaysian radio there's also been attempts to discredit russian sources of information c.n.n. put out a breakdown of what it called russia's propaganda the first item on the list is this it says the russian take passengers were already dead when put aboard the image seventeen but when you follow the link on this page it has an article in russian which reviews all the apparently put on hold fake fur jeans and conspiracy theories that are out there that's what the article says specifically about the theory that the bodies were dead before the crash it says literally then there is information which is simply impossible to believe c n n presents it and calls it the russian take it is not the russian take in the same breakdown right after this dead bodies theory c.n.n. puts russian defense officials showing evidence that ukraine had the capability to shoot down the plane moscow is now saying ukraine did it showing evidence that it
had the capability to do it contrary to what here is now say that claim is brushed off as propaganda information is now politically charged on all airwaves it seems many journalists have already handed down their verdict in washington i'm going to check on. the u.s. state department has released images which it says backup claims that russia has fired rockets into ukrainian territory the pictures have spread across social networks and the media but their origin is not pm they claim to show the impact of multiple rocket launches fired over the border from russia at ukrainian military units at the russian parliament says the material contains no actual evidence the u.s. secretary of state though insists that that mosque is using heavy weapons despite russia's foreign minister denying this in their sunday phone conversation from a u.s. treasury official and columnist paul craig roberts told us why he isn't convinced
by these pictures. someone needs to ask the state department did they issue or this information by email early on a sunday morning this is a completely dead time in news many american cities aren't even out yet san francisco los angeles seattle it's still early hours in the morning so. if this was released by the state department which i doubt it's so unprofessional i was a assistant secretary the united states treasury i was added to the wall street journal this is not the way important news is released ever. coming up after the break on our national. scale hangs in the balance come us and israel failed to reach to extend a humanitarian. mediation efforts from the united nations.
the. economic down in the final. days. and the rest. will be if we. are watching r t international a twenty four hour ceasefire extension between israel and hamas which had been proposed by the united nations failed to hold on sunday first the palestinian militant group rejected the deal firing broad rockets from gaza into israel the group explained that it could not agree to a. truce until israel pulled out of gaza it prompted israel to continue its operations on sunday morning later hamas relented and call for the truce to be reinstated but according to israeli officials failed to comply with its own
proposal according to reports from the area the fighting for plighted during the day but there is still no official truce deal in place honestly it would force. there were barrages of rockets fired from gaza at israel in the early hours of sunday morning several were intercepted over the same to the country and they have been sirens sounding both in the same to and in the south of israel there was also an israeli soldier that was killed by a mortar shell not far from the israel gaza border that the israeli military fatalities to some forty three now all of this follows a cease fire the loss of zero on saturday by both sides that ceasefire was a u.n. brokered humanitarian truce and it enabled aid workers to bring much needed emergency supplies into the gaza strip as you know hospitals there for example has practically run out of medicine it was also a chance for people inside gaza to return to their homes to try and salvage what little they could to bury the dead and also to recover bodies these ratings have
saved that they believe that the number of rockets that hamas and islamic jihad have at their disposal has decreased dramatically because of this israeli operation and they also believe that the israelis will be forced to remain inside the gaza strip because they say militants in gaza will try to hold on to the remaining awesome though and extend the fighting in the gaza strip for quite some time so it certainly doesn't look as if. it's not take a look at a video our correspondents and us earlier in the week from one of the worst hit areas of gaza it does contain some disturbing images. ok that's what we're doing now. we're going to move. on with her. the man man can be seen in the little room a residential building in the video is going to show him hit by israeli gunfire and
the man appears to be seeking cover on a bullet hits him while he's stretched out on the ground means is what an eyewitness told us. with respect to the death all together there were four shots fired the first one missed him but the remainder three were aimed for him the second one was fatal. which caused him to fall down a lot on the ground and the third war and war is i guess for them to make sure that they had got him basically he was as far as we are aware he was looking for his family he was frantic he was more he was leading the way he was on the floor and he knew the air we had wanted to do was find his army this resulted in his day there was supposed to be a cease fire as well however as research into the region there was bombing nearby there was shelling nearby and snipers shooting it's. on sunday evening barack obama called the israeli prime minister's seeking an immediate and
unconditional cease fire in gaza and in a poll scott talked to a spokesman the israeli foreign ministry and he said that israel's operation is merely a response to aggression from calm us. they say that all timothy's should be investigated and i agree and i'll tell you what we're going to discover we're going to discover that israel has taken unprecedented steps in a very difficult circumstance to minimize and to avoid civilian casualties and we're going to discover that hamas evil machine with a killer strategy has named it is perpetrating war crime of the war crime going to discover you say that israel is doing all it can to minimize civilian casualties are you doing enough for boys killed on a beach we're hearing about civilians being killed every single day we said repetitively we said it also quietly through diplomatic channels quiet will be all said with quiet calm will be responded to with call this message was rejected out
of hand we've been three cease fire proposals one by the egyptians one by the united nations one by the international committee for the red cross all three we accepted unconditionally we implemented them all three of which with the with the glib laws they couldn't care less attitude rejected and violated so i agree with you the this is a real tragedy the responsibility for which lies directly at the doorstep of hamas as always plenty more for you. printed student from florida university the lives of a six year old baby boy born with and on deficiency it costs just a few hundred dollars to build and you can even climb trees with it it's our t. dot com for the full story. navy day ships and submarines of jets troops i mean even robots where paraded at all it's nationwide the day commemorates a russian c.

death row inmate joseph would rise in pain during a two hour execution this prolonged suffering was not part of the plan and not constitutional but an accident and not quite a unique wanted that just this year in both oklahoma and my native ohio there have been botched executions due to complications with lethal injection one judge alex kozinski who voted to give what a stay of execution due to the questionable nature of lethal injection drugs said that the good old firing squad would be a lot more humane and his opinion eight or ten large caliber bullets fired at close range inflict massive damage causing instant death every time i think lethal injection is popular not for the executed but for society as judge kozinski said shooting someone in the head with a machine gun is instant death so why don't they use the firing squad because that would be messy and raise questions quietly injecting people way from prying public eyes allows the dirty deed to be done without the hassle of ugly news footage i
